Major Challenges for Welding Products Market

  • High cost of labor, especially in developed countries, has been a major concern among the manufacturing industries. Increase in cost of labor has been escalating the cost of production, thereby adversely affecting manufacturers.
  • Introduction of robotic or automated welding machines is anticipated to overcome this challenge in the global welding products market in the near future

High Use of Stick Electrodes Consumables in Welding Processes

  • Welding consumables account for larger share of the global welding products market. Electrodes and filler metals are the key consumables used in different welding processes. Molten melt tends to spill out during the process of out-of-position welding. Electrode helps avoid the spill through fast freezing deposit. Stick electrodes are commonly used in the shielded metal arc welding (SMAW) process.
  • Stick electrodes has strong demand from Asia Pacific region owing to large heavy industries in the region. However, stick electrodes face competition from flux-cored wires and solid wires, which are cost efficient in nature. Hence, stick electrodes is likely to decline its market share at the end of the forecast year.

Upcoming Welding Technologies in Welding Products Market

  • Resistant welding, oxy-fuel welding, and laser beam welding are projected to be most attractive segments if the global welding products market. Oxy-fuel welding includes any welding operation that uses combustion with oxygen as a heating medium. It is a versatile and affordable welding technique. Oxy-fuel welding is ideally suited for repair welding and welding thin sheets, tubes, and small diameter pipes.
  • Resistant welding is an economical welding technique. It does not require a filler material and is ideal for joining vehicle body parts, fuel tanks, domestic radiators, pipes of gas, oil and water pipelines, wire ends, turbine blades, and railway tracks.
  • Other techniques such as ultrasound welding can be used to join all rigid thermoplastics, synthetic fabrics, and films. Ultrasound welding is cost-effective and green technology-based welding technique. Demand for this welding technology is likely to increase during the forecast period.

Asia Pacific to Lead Welding Products Market

  • Asia Pacific held a major share of the global welding products market in 2018. This trend is anticipated to continue during the forecast period. Asia Pacific constituted more than 40% share in 2018. High investments in end-user industries such as automobile and building & construction are anticipated to boost the welding products market in the region.
  • China, Japan, and India were key contributors to the welding products market in Asia Pacific in 2018
